9to5 Mac and iFixYouri.com have wasted no time in taking apart the Verizon iPhone 4, with 9to5 Mac posting their findings today, as well as a tear-down video. Possibly the most significant finding from looking at the Verizon iPhone 4s innards was that it has a Qualcomm MDM6600 chip inside, which is, according to 9to5 Mac, dual-mode GSM and CDMA compatible, leading them to conclude that the iPhone 5 will be dual-mode, and possibly able to be used on both Verizon and AT&Ts networks. Other differences noted between the AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4s by iFixit are: the vibrator; speaker housing; cable protector; the way in which the cable goes under the battery to access the logic board; the fact that the logic board connectors are different and in different positions; the fact that the Verizon iPhone has more screws holding the board down; the headphone jack; the front-facing camera cover; the dock connector flex; and the fact that the glass has a different frame.
